Red light camera report reveals clear financial benefits and unclear safety benefits. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets.
This may not come as a surprise, but the safety benefits of red light cameras are still being questioned.
According to The Newspaper.com, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency annual report on automated ticketing reveals that while the red light cameras have obvious financial benefits, the safety benefits are unclear. Millions of dollars worth of camera tickets were issued, less than 10 percent of which were actually contested.
It’s no wonder then that State Senator Jerry Hill’s new measure seeks to cut the base fine amount for rolling stops in half. The “right on red” violations are currently in the same ticket category as speeding for example, even though National Highway Traffic Safety Administration studies have reportedly found that less than .04 percent of crashes nationwide involve “right on red” turns. - This blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Fighting Traffic Tickets
